Couldn't agree more on the last stretch of statements....

The fact that they could do that full change in such a short time was HUGE advantage for Audi....

Imagine how much longer those stops would have been if they had to rebuild the one that just broke in the car???

But Ayse, you have to agree that a full gearbox change in what 3 mins or so is quite impressive.

full throttle should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I've read on another forum that the new Audi has already found a way around this rule by using a gear cassette that slips into the gearbox housing. Innovation at its best I suppose. What the new rule will do is prohibit them from changing a rearend ass'y due to incident on the track. The Audi's have benefited from that quite a few times in the last couple years.

Yes, they have....

The gear cassette is an interesting concept in itself....

What about a car made in Lego ?

Endurance is reliability of spare parts too, or the privateers won't follow...

Impressive work by Audi anyway : could it be done on our cars one day ?
